HOLLIE Doyle continued her record-breaking season with two wins at Royal Ascot on the same day.

Doyle won in the Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup aboard Trueshan and then later the same day in a group one race on board 16/1 shot Glen Shiel.

In a year of significant milestones, the Herefordshire raised jockey enjoyed her first Royal Ascot success aboard Scarlet Dragon in the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes and then went on to claim her first Group victory when Dame Malliot triumphed in the Princess of Wales's Stakes at Newmarket.

A debut appearance in a Group One contest followed aboard the same filly in Germany, before Doyle set another benchmark when breaking her own British record for winners in a calendar year for a female rider when notching her 117th success of 2020 at Kempton and has now increased this to 124 winners.

"I don't usually set goals - but I actually walked out into the season having that particular goal to ride a Group winner at some point, so it was an excellent day," she said.

In August Doyle also became the first female jockey to win five races on the same card, completing her 899-1 five-timer at Windsor on mounts from five separate stables.

It came in a muted atmosphere, with racing taking place behind closed doors, and Doyle admits it took a while for the significance to sink in.

"Looking back on it now, I realise how big an achievement it was," she said.

"At the time I probably didn't. It is weird at the moment, riding with no crowds and no atmosphere, so that probably was why I didn't really take it in that much.

"It was a great day, for five different trainers as well."

Doyle's talents have certainly been well advertised - and owner Imad Al Sagar, whose silks were carried by 2007 Epsom Derby winner Authorized, secured her services as his retained rider back in July, with the partnership already enjoying plenty of success.

"It was the last thing that I ever really expected to happen to me, to be honest - when it did I was really surprised and excited," she said.

Currently sitting fourth in the Flat jockeys' championship, Doyle is understated about her chances of eventually becoming the first ever female champion jockey in Britain.

After claiming her record-breaking Windsor five-timer, she was tipped to one day top the table by all-time great Frankie Dettori, but still remains focused on the present.

"Maybe one day, I've got a long way to go," she said.

"I can improve my riding, but if I keep getting the rides and riding as many winners as I am, then I hope maybe one day I could be in contention and have a chance.

"I just hope it can encourage more people to get out there and realise it can be done. That's what I'd like to prove."
